One of the most iconic places along the road to Deltaville
is Horne's Restaurant.
You can see its bright yellow roof
snugged between routes 301 and 17 in Port Rotal, VA.
It was our bathroom stop.
Back in the day,
it was one of the only places to stop between Waldorf, MD and Tappahannock, VA.

Horne's was the brain child of a candy salesman named Mr. Horne.
He modeled his store after Stucky's stores.
After the building of I95,
old roads heading North and South weren't as well traveled 
and many of the Horne's stores closed.
The location in VA is one of only a few Horne's left
operated by independent owners.
They have food and ice cream,
gas, souvenirs
and bathrooms.
And they're open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including holidays
Stop at Horne's
and make your bladder happy!
